Ryan S. Mohammed, Carol Ramjohn, Floyd Lucas, Wayne G. Rostant


Over the last decade, we have sampled various rivers across Trinidad using multiple techniques including seining and cast netting. This allowed us to compile a large database which includes the distribution of Trinidad’s freshwater fish species. The following report summarizes our findings for the changed distribution for nine species of fish native to Trinidad. Our findings also indicate a new fish species (Trichogaster trichopterus) record for Trinidad.

Key words: Ancistrus, Awaous, Callichthys callichthys, Dormitator maculatus, Eleotris pisonis, Erythrinus erythrinus, Gasteropelecus sternicla, Gymnotus carapo, Triportheus elongatus, Trichogaster trichopterus, distribution, Trinidad.
